Asked to name a Democratic supporter, Republican state senate candidate mentions former president Bill Clinton
BOSTON - In a live chat today on Patch.com, Republican state senate candidate Dean Cavaretta claimed that former president Bill Clinton has endorsed his campaign.
The Massachusetts Democratic Party called on Cavaretta to provide more details about President Clinton's previously undisclosed endorsement.
"What is it with Massachusetts Republicans this year?" asked Massachusetts Democratic Party spokesman Kevin Franck. "Maybe Dean Cavaretta was in a secret meeting with kings and queens when Hilary Clinton, who calls him all the time, rang him to break the news about Bill's endorsement."
"It would be pretty big news if a former president decided to wade into a local race to support a long-shot Republican candidate who opposes marriage equality, wants to undo ObamaCare and supports Mitt Romney, but I guess stranger things have happened," Franck said.

Comment From Alan: What about Dems4Dean? So far, you've only listed endorsements from Republicans. Is this account just you retweeting yourself, because I haven't met any Dems who support you.
